2012 Black Friday Brick and Mortar Prepaid Phone Deals Timeline

Walmart on Black Friday

Welcome to the 2012 edition of Prepaid Phone News annual Black Friday prepaid phone deals page. We now know what most of this year's sale items will be but there are always some last minute additions and changes. This page will be updated frequently with new deals now through at least the end of Black Friday week.

My picks for the top deals this Black Friday are the Boost Mobile Kyocera Hydro Android for $39.88 at Walmart, Virgin  Mobile  LG Optimus Elite Android phone for $49.99 at BestBuy, Virgin Mobile HTC One V Android phone $99.99 and Virgin Mobile HTC One VAndroid phone $99.99 at Radio Shack and  the Virgin Mobile Kyocera Rise for $29.99  and Virgin Mobile iPhone 4S for $499.99 with free $100 Gift Card at Target.

Just keep in mind that stores usually only have a handful, or even just one, of the best selling items. Which means that you have little or no chance of getting the hottest items unless you get in line hours before stores open. It's up to you if it's worth it.

Many of these items will also be available online. Most stores, as well as online only merchants like Amazon.com, will have online Black Friday sales which can start several days before Black Friday. Be sure to visit Prepaid Phone News' constantly updated list of online Black Friday deals to find the top online deals.

Comment Page :
  1. I noticed T-Mobile doesn't want any part of black Friday deals.....I wonder why??

  2. Do you expect competition to be tough for the Virgin Iphone 4S in the bay area, yeswap?

  3. Out of the phones from Walmart witch would you say is better

    1. Probably the Kyocera Hydro. The Samsung Illusion is an excellent phone but it only works with Verizon's over-priced $80/month prepaid smartphone plan.

  4. all straight talk smartphones on sale at walmart

  5. Straight talk inventory levels and selection will be a hit this holidays at walmart.. You can see people interest right now...

  6. Verizon Samsung Illusion Android phone $49.99 (reg $169.99, will it work on page plus plans?

    1. No, it's a prepaid Verizon phone so it won't work on Page Plus.
